Mauna Kea Golf
Desolate black lava fields on the Island of Hawaii’s sunny Kohala Coast were transformed by course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. when he was commissioned by Laurance S. Rockefeller to design the Island’s first golf course in 1964. Proving difficult even for professionals, modern improvements to Mauna Kea Golf Course by RTJ’s son, Rees Jones, kept the original character intact while opening up memorable, yet still challenging play, including 99 bunkers, for all player levels.
Mauna Kea Resort’s Hapuna Golf Course rises to more than 700 feet above sea level during the course of play. Often snow-topped Mauna Kea mountain serves as a dramatic backdrop and there are views of the Pacific from some vantage on each of its 18 holes. Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay collaborated in 1994 to create the visually stunning links course that utilizes natural contours of the landscape, blending seamlessly into the existing environment.
